Paris Saint-Gerain are ready to rival Manchester United for the signature of Cristiano Ronaldo - and will offer him an eye-watering €18 million-per-year deal to lure him to France - according to L'Equipe.

Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid has been the subject of speculation since he declared himself as 'sad' back in September - while his recent admission that he wouldn't sign a new contract with Los Blancos has added further fuel to the fire.

Recently Ronaldo allegedly aimed a barrage of expletives towards Jose Mourinho and the Real Madrid bench after scoring in his side's 6-2 win over Malaga, prompting more suggestions he is unhappy in Spain.

Manchester United have been linked with a move to take Ronaldo back to Old Trafford in recent months, almost four years after his world record £80 million transfer to Madrid.

The latest batch of reports even reveal one group of Manchester United fans are urging their fellow supporters to put £10 each into a fund in order activate the £100 million buy-out clause written in the Portuguese star's contract.

However it appears as though the Red Devils face serious competition from Paris Saint-Germain, who are ready to offer an eye-watering contract in order to lure him to Ligue 1.

L'Equipe also claim PSG are in a position to negotiate over Ronaldo's £100m fee because Madrid are interested in securing the services of manager Carlo Ancelotti, who is favourite to replace Jose Mourinho in the hot seat at the Bernabeu this summer.
